Togg specifies e-roadmap and shows sedan study

All models will be built on the same platform, according to a statement from Togg. Specifically planned are a sedan and a hatchback in the C-segment, as well as a B-SUV and a van. The company sees itself as a "global technology brand" and is wholly owned by the Turkish state, with "intellectual and industrial property" to form the core of Turkey's mobility ecosystem, it says.

Brief review: In August, Togg had specified its plans for the start of series production of the country's first electric car. According to company boss Gürcan Karakas, the debut model - an SUV with a range of up to 500 kilometres - is to go into series production in the fourth quarter of 2022 and roll out to dealers in two design variants - one for "western" and one for "more oriental tastes". As mentioned above, the market launch is advised for early 2023.

Togg's E-SUV will initially be sold exclusively in Turkey, and according to information from August, sales in Germany and Europe are not planned until a year and a half after the market launch. In the summer of 2020, it was still said that sales in Germany would begin in parallel with the planned market launch in Turkey.

Company boss Gürcan Karakaş wants to produce one million vehicles of the five models mentioned by 2030. With this in mind, a plant with a capacity of 175,000 vehicles per year is being built in Gemlik, Turkey. Also in Gemlik, Togg is currently building a battery plant to be operated by the joint venture with Farasis Energy. The two sides sealed the establishment of the 50:50 joint venture called Siro last year. While Siro's headquarters are in Bilisim Vadisi in northwestern Turkey, series production of the batteries takes place in the aforementioned Gemlik.
